Default HP sleep mode

has anybody got any advise on how to get a hp laptop out of sleep mode.

switch the computer on, no post, just a black sceen, tried a external moniter but did not help, and i know its stuck in sleep mode.
have tried the power cycle where u disconnected the mains and battery and hold down the power button for 30-60 secs, then connect the battery and switch on, did not work.
tried switching on but only having the screen a little open, did not work.

anybody got any suguesstions.

yes i am sure, can't run any thing from the disk drive because the screen stays black, tried it with out the hard drive and memory, but got a beep to say theys no memory. so i thought the external monitor might help but still black screen, no post, keyboard does not respond, hard drive light blinks and then stops blinking. its annoying to say the least. cheers ACG

Is there any bios updates available for it? Is this a vista for XP machine? Try re-installing the video drivers as well.

Did you yank the CMOS batt and try to let it drain out. Not the normal battery, the CMOS batt.

ps- can we have a rule that when you ask for help you must post the make and model of the computer you are
dealing with. That should be the first thing someone posts when asking for help.

I think we need to start over.

Why do you think its in sleep mode?. Please explain that.

Also what indication do you see its in sleep mode and not having some other kind of issue.
